The Menopause is a natural process that marks the end of a woman’s menstruation cycles.

Posted on: 14/07/2021

This usual timespan for this process occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 – which means most women can expect some 30 years of post-menopausal life. For some this is even longer as early menopause occurs in approx 5% of women before age 40 or may have been precipitated by surgery such as a hysterectomy.

The significant hormonal changes that hijack the body at this point can cause profound changes in a women’s health and lead to side effects that interrupt your normal lifestyle such as:

  • physical aches and pains
  • reduction in bone density
  • strength and balance
  • weight gain
  • hot flushes
  • insomnia and depressed mood
  • pelvic floor muscle weakness
  • urinary and faecal incontinence
  • pelvic organ prolapse
  • painful intercourse

Fortunately we understand more about how these symptom not only impact on quality of life but we have solutions to combat them.  We work closely with GP’s, Gynaecologists, personal trainers, clinical psychologists and nutritionists to ensure you are as prepared as possible before you hit the menopause, and progress through this stage in life feeling in control!

The BWT Women’s Health Service can help you by providing:

  • Effective treatment for any physical aches and pains
  • Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation and bladder/bowel retraining for incontinence
  • Treatment for Pelvic Organ Prolapse, vaginal dryness and sexual dysfunction
  • Advice on appropriate and safe exercise to improve bone density, strength, balance, weight management and sleep quality
  • Massage, acupuncture and advice on self-care strategies to improve mood, sleep and well being
